Minimally, you need to rebase all DLLs that will be loaded in the
application of interest.  Practically, this means to rebase your entire
system. [2]

No, you seem to be a candidate for running rebase directly.  Just create
a file containing the list of DLLs to rebase and pass it to rebase via
the "-T" option.  You may want to investigate rebaseall to see how it
finds all of the installed Cygwin DLLs.  Note that you have to pass all
DLLs to rebase in a single shot.

BTW, I would accept a patch to rebaseall that adds support for multiple
but optional "-T" options and a patch to rebase to accept multiple "-T"

Most likely.

Most likely.
